The new sword is great. After spending some time with it and working with it I am very impressed with the sword and how well it works. The sword is light weight and is great for practicing forms and has a really good feel throughout all of the techniques. I also like the way it “sings” as it slices through the air during movements. It definitely makes a slicing sound as it moves through the air when performing slicing techniques just as a live blade would. The workmanship on the lacquered scabbard is great and I really like the added touch of my name in Korean text. That really personalizes the sword and makes it more special to me. Thank you for doing such a great job on my sword and taking the time to make it “My” sword. I am proud to own it. Just to let you know I will be ordering another sword just like it in the future to be able to have a pair of swords that complement each other so well. Thank you again for such a great product.

Hello Kevin KJN,
I just got my sword today! WOW, I love it!! Not the least bit disappointed...I am so very surprised how well the blade stays in the handle without moving ;-)
As stated, you are an artist sir...I am sure I will get many years of use with this sword...The magnets are a VERY nice touch, as was the sword bag ;-)
Thank you sir, have a great new year ;-)
Hello Mr Janisse,
I just wanted to drop you a quick line to let you know that the sword has arrived and I am wearing myself out practicing with it.
You do excellent work and I will enjoy this in the years to come that I use it.
All the best,
P.S. I will be ordering more soon!
THE SWORDS LOOK GREAT…FEEL GOOD…EXCELLENT WORKMANSHIP….
The sword is excellent. It is light to work with and makes a good sound when you swing it and listen to it. It is a very excellent to practise with. It is also very sturdy and set in its place (the blade). I had purchased a very cheap practise sword a couple years back and there is a bit of a wobble in the blade - this is very stable and well made.
